Turns out, many brain disorders have origins in the gut. It has taken MD's decades
to admit this, but finally they are taking to heart what the naturopaths have been advising for the past 30 years...
"All disease begins in the gut"
- Hippocrates 2000BC, the father of modern day medicine.
When tracing the root cause of conditions such as depression, anxiety, insomnia, and fibromyalgia, Dr. Sponaugle explains how he began peeling back layers upon layers of causes that lead to a surprising beginning... the gut!
Once you understand the physiology of the gut and the connection between the gut and the brain, you can remedy these conditions, they are from the gut themselves, explains Dr. Sponaugle in his interview.
Now studies show that 80-90% of brain disorders are known to be caused by disturbances to the intestinal lining and microbial imbalances in the digestive tract.
Due to the overuse of antibiotics the modern day gut is missing it's beneficial bacteria. Instead it is over run by yeast and fungus so it has lost it's ability to perform vital physiological functions such as producing important neurotransmitters serotonin.
You’ve heard of the anti-depressant Prozac, yes? It works by allowing your brain to absorb more serotonin, a hormone responsible for feelings of happiness. Well guess what?
Up to 95% of your serotonin is actually made in your gut by beneficial bacteria. So it may be that your depression is not even yours per se, or even in ‘your head’ and is, instead, a severe deficiency of beneficial bacteria in your gut.
